Coral Smythe was known as the Aphrodite. She had stopped entertaining men but she will be won through gambling for seven nights. Coral will be scared as her job was one she hated especially when Captain Wargate was not like all the other men out there.
Captain Isaac Wargate disliked his men gambling away their earnings but there was little he could do. All he could do was make sure his men made it back to the ship. Though this time Isaac will stay behind to help the Aphrodite who was being sold for seven nights.
The Ice Princess is the fourth book to the series Prince Trilogy by Elizabeth Hoyt. I really liked this story right from the start. I was pulled into the story right away.
Coral’s character was a woman who led a hard life but she did what she had to do. You felt bad for Coral when her freedom was taken away but she was a clever woman. Then there was Isaac who was a stern but a fair man. He had a softer side which showed when he saved Coral from the other men. Now since this was only a novella the story was fact paced but I liked how with each night she wrote them getting closer, they were connecting with each other.
The ending had a twist but with a nice surprise that left the romance reader in me happy.
